Back to Life :)

Been away. I know, I know; you've missed me, right?

Well, turns out the dream girl wasn't a dream girl after all. Luckily, I figured that out soon enough. And thank God, I'm not in love with her.

Mak, you can have her my friend :D Just watch out.

The thing is she turned out to be one helluva liar. Or rather a bitch, or both. I know I shouldn't call her that, but let me vent here. If you don't like it for whatever reason, get LOST!

I was really upset and mad. I mean I trusted her and we had something going on. Then BAM! Turns out she was dating another guy at the time we were supposed to be bf/gf and don't tell me it's because she's Italian (and Egyptian girls wouldn't do that--they do!).

And the worst of all is that she lied to me. She told me there was no one else but me and I believed her. I trusted her.

Anyway, when I finally made sure she had someone else in her life, I broke up with her. And because at that point, I couldn't even see her, I just called her and told her it was over.

I can never tolerate lying, not to mention being unfaithful.

Anyway, I've been busy at work and I'm staying at my uncle's here in Hurghada for a while. So, I'm back again. Yeah, I missed you too.

The girl with the blue eyes

I think I may have just met my dream girl...

She's Italian with Egyptian and Lebanese roots, lives in Italy with her family. We met last month here in Egypt and ever since, I've been smitten. She's wonderful. In every way.

She's smart, caring, funny, honest, decent, down to earth, romantic.

And above all, she's just gorgeous (just look at her).

Could it be? Too soon to tell, I guess?

Boycott Israel, boycott Starbucks

Never thought I'd say this but I've decided to boycott Starbucks coffee. Yes, even if it's the best coffee in the world. It wasn't until lately when a friend of mine refused to buy coffee at Starbucks. I mean, come on, I was thrilled it's finally opened here in Egypt.

Read this and this to know what I'm talking about.

Howard Shultz, the chairman of Starbucks is an active zionist.

Starbucks, ladies and gentlemen, supports Israel and Bush's so-called war on terror.

I have a Palestinian friend who now resides in Canada and he used to tell me about his horrible life back in Palestine and what those Israeli scumbags did to him and his family. It's a lot like you see in the news on TV, you know the part when you avert your eyes...

So, I'm asking you (not telling you--feel free to do what you want) to boycott Starbucks. Yes, it's amazing coffee and could be the best (but hey we didn't die before Starbucks showed up here), but unwillingly you're supporting Isreal and the war in Iraq. Think twice before you step inside Starbucks next time and before you take the next sip of coffee.

For some reason, I'm so disgusted now by their coffee. I keep remembering that I should be a good Muslim and support my Arab brothers and sisters.

Life sucks. I have a cold. Stay away.

Only 17!

Well, if I talk about rude or horrible girls again, would you shoot me?

I can't help it. I have to. So, if you're upset already, just move on and don't read any further. If you aren't be my guest :)

It happened that I was (again) with a friend of mine (a guy) and we were at this lovely cafe. And apparently someone's forgot to mention that now girls smoke like there's no tomorrow at the age of 17! (I know many guys at 17 do, but aren't girls supposed to be so feminine and delicate at this innocent age or did I miss that?)

There were these two girls. One was wearing a tight jacket, the other a weird cap and top and both of them kept smoking one cigarette after another. I wanted to ask them to stop. They looked--what's the word--wasted, may be?

Then, they started staring at me and my friend and smiling, then laughing so loudly. We both looked at each other and thought NO WAY! We were almost ten years older than them.

Apparently, the girls didn't mind.

So one of them stood up and walked toward us. "Excuse me, do you have a matchbox or lighter?"

My friend was a smoker and even though I warned him not to with a look, he smiled and handed his lighter to her.

She lit a cigarette, smiled and just stood there. Waiting for us to say something.

I looked away.

"Enta shaklak mesh masry 3la fekra?" she said, addressing me.

"Last time I checked I was an Egyptian, "I replied, coldly.

She took the hint. "It's just me and my friend over there and we just thought you guys look so cute and may be we could be friends?"

Since when have girls become so rude?

"Do you know how old we are, sweetheart?" I said.

"25-28," she said.

"And how old are you? 18?" I asked.

"No, 17."

"And you're heavy smoker at 17? What will you do when you're 23? Smoke a chimney?"

The girl was offended, thank God and hit it off.

Girls like that make me sick.

Shameit el neseem kowayes?

So, I spent the last few days in Alex. Man, I needed this holiday. I went out with friends. It was windy there most of the time, but I liked it.

I don't really celebrate Easter or "Sham el neseem" or whatever else you call it. I don't believe in coloring eggs and all that bunny stuff either. Anyway.

And since I happen to know Mystery in real life, I've been worried about her. You can read it all on her blog if you happen to be one of her readers.

So, what did you all do?

I was tagged by Thunder by the way (I insist on calling her that and not Ra3d) :D. Thanks for the tag again. Here goes:

1. Did you use to be a good student at school?

I guess I wasn't in terms of decent behavior and obedience. I got really excellent grades though which was confusing to my teachers. They didn't know whether to love or hate me. Most of the time, I used to get in trouble with my friends.

2. What were your most loved and most hated subjects?

Most loved: English, math, biology and literature
Most hated: Science, chemistry (Yuck!), physics, Arabic grammar and geography

3. When young, what did you want to become?

Until I was ten years old, I wanted to become a doctor when I grew up since I cared deeply about others (I still do care from time to time). Then, I wanted to become a professional football player. Later, I realized I wanted to become a director (yes, as in direct movies) and I actually dreamed of studying drama abroad. Then, later I fell in love with business administration and internet both at once and well, that' where I am now :)

I'm tagging Nora and anyone else interested.
